Isamu Noguchi, Chess Table, 1948-49, ebonised plywood, cast aluminium, plastic insets

Responding to a critical mass of chess- obsessed avant-garde artists in New York in the early 1940s, the gallerist Julien Levy invited a number of them to create chess sets for The Imagery of Chess exhibition at his gallery in 1944. Having already produced a handful of mass-manufactured items for Knoll and Herman Miller, Noguchi’s table combined function alongside aesthetic considerations, with a swiveling top concealing a hollow tray for storing the accompanying chess pieces. Herman Miller manufactured the table in 1947-48 but discontinued the IN-61 model due to low demand.
